TMZ reports that Johansson's attorney sent letters of warning to various websites demanding they immediately take down "stolen copyright protected private photographs."

Confirming that the R-rated photos are indeed bonafide, the 26-year-old star's attorney Marty Singer writes: "The highly personal and private photographs at issue capture our client self-posing in her own home in a state of undress and/or topless."
